Description 

 

Stendhal enhances many writing client-side interfaces in Fabric.

It offers a brand new interface to the Book & Quill, Anvil and Sign editing screens, with quick access to various tools (import & export books to/from disk in 1.17, copy entire page content, entire books, clear a page or a book entirely in one click, ...), legacy colors and one-click away unicode characters!

On top of that, it also offers a quick access bar for unicode characters when opening the chat! You can also customize your nametags with these beautiful vanilla unicodes in any Anvil!

Impress your friends by using these unicode characters while talking to them, or give directions on signs in a beautiful way!

 

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the features shipped with Stendhal:

  • Access the detailed configuration file under .minecraft/.config/stendhal/stendhal.properties to change any option related to the mod

FAQ

Q: Does this mod allow anyone that did not install Stendhal to see the books and signs modified with it?

A: Yes! This mod is entirely client-side, meaning anyone with or without the mod will see the modifications done by it. It only takes advantages of hidden vanilla features and exposes them to the users without doing any breaking changes.

 

Q: Can I use your mod in/for my modpack/datapack?

A: Please do! A possible credit would be appreciated in your modlist.
Simply do not appropriate yourself this mod.

 

Q: Will this mod ever come to Forge?

A: No! I'm sorry, this mod is intended to push a little forward the Fabric community, and this is my choice to explicitly not make it available to another mod loader for the time being.
However, Ghostwriter is a solid alternative for Forge and the book editing part.

 

Q: Where can I find the source code of the project?

A: As of now, nowhere. This project has been a precious opportunity to make myself comfortable again with Java and a good learning process for modding, as much as I would love some help and see how people could contribute in amazing ways, I still want to practice and learn more for future mods.
I don't exclude opening the source code later down the line!

 

Q: Why is your mod named "Stendhal"?

A: Glad you are wondering! Marie-Henri Stendhal was a renowned French writer born in the 19th century in my hometown in France.

 

 

Upcoming Updates

 

Here is a list of possible new features I have in mind for this project:

  • Fix cursor position offset after clicking on formatted text in books. This is an official Minecraft bug. (Use the arrow keys in the meantime)
  • Extend the list of Unicode characters available within the menus.
  • Utilities for signed read-only books ( such as duplication to a minecraft:writable-book ).
